Staying COVID Safe in Spring and Summer

We’ve got a kaleidoscope of world-class racing, style and entertainment lined-up for you during the final months of 2020. Of course, our raceday experience is different at the moment and we’ll need your support in maintaining a COVID Safe venue. Here's how.

It’s racing re-imagined in 2020. We’ve been privileged to continue racing throughout this unprecedented period and its enabled us to hone our racedays to deliver a customer experience with minimal disruption in a COVID Safe environment.

Of course, our racedays are a little different now. We encourage patrons to pre-register their attendance online prior to the event. Each digital e-ticket includes access to a designated area offering ample seating for all pre-registered guests, wagering facilities, access to bars, eateries and toilets. You may also reserve a place to enjoy dining in one of our award-winning restaurants.

Guests must remain seated and movement to other ticketed zones is restricted. However you may walk with purpose to enjoy the theatre of the horse, day-stalls and designated race viewing spaces in your ticketed designated area. At Canterbury Park for Kia Friday Night Racing, attendees may also access family entertainment and food zones. When in your designated area please remain seated.

As per our COVID-19 exemption from NSW Health, we request patrons wear a mask when not seated.

To help make the most of your day at the track, we encourage guests familiarise yourself with the procedures below.
